Rossfeldt: Rolls-Royce and Bentley / From the Dawn of the 20th Century into the new Millennium

Bobbit: Silver Spirit & Silver Spur

Rolls-Royce Flying Spur
(1994 - 1995)

Rolls-Royce Flying Spur, 1995, #GAS55646
Rolls-Royce Flying Spur, 1995, #GAS55646. Mulliner Park Ward had executed their skills on this Flying Spur - adding a small rearlight, kneeling Spirit of Ecstasy, special chrome trim etc., etc.

90 years after the rather tiny 1904 Rolls-Royce 10 hp had been completed the most powerful car to bear that name emerged from the company. The 1994 Rolls-Royce Flying Spur was the first ever turbocharged Rolls-Royce and the press release advised that only a limited series was intended to see the light of day. Power-output was more than sufficient and in a most civilized manner this car offered level of performance which was a new dimension for Rolls-Royce motor car. The name Flying Spur could be traced back to the Johnstone family, whose coat of arms had shown "Flying Spur". A member of this family had been director of the coachbuilding company H.J. Mulliner and the four door versions built there for the outstanding Bentley S Continental had been christened "Flying Spur". H.J. Mulliner had been taken over by Rolls-Royce and there was no denying that the famous designation now was applied to a most worthy heir.
